Jimmy Jambo provides promising Kaizer Chiefs progress report

accreditation

"Our aim is to holistically develop players, results will come when you have a good environment with them," Jambo, whose own playing career with the club was cut short through injury, told Kaizer Chiefs' website.

"We want to develop good technical players and the result will come. The set of players that I have are very hungry. They have a good understanding of the game and the core players from last season are still around, which helps with continuity.

"Training without playing does not help. The boys need to be in a competitive environment and the GDL is giving us the platform to be competitive.

"The boys that I started with in the GDL have already progressed to the Reserves and some to the U-19 team. To have those boys go from u-13 all the way up is a good progression."
